Owning a food truck business takes a lot of hard work, dedication, creative and delicious eats as well as a good dose of luck for a food truck to thrive and be successful.

Over the last year, we have seen a boom in gourmet food trucks coming out of Toronto, Hamilton and the rapidly growing Kitchener-Waterloo area, but we’ve also seen a number of trucks shut its windows and call it a day.

Here are 9 food trucks who we saw close down over the last year:

  • Beach Boys Burger Truck (Toronto)
  • Hula Girl Coffee Truck (Toronto)
  • Food Man & Culture Boy (Hamilton)
  • Big Chief (Hamilton)
  • Sweetness Bakery Truck (Hamilton)
  • Stuft Truck (Toronto)
  • Curbside Crepes (Waterloo)
  • Cupcake Diner (Burlington)
  • Gone Nuts Bakery (Durham)

However, losing a truck isn’t all bad news for our food truck industry since there are plenty of chefs out there looking to get their hands on a service-ready truck for their own business.

If it weren’t for the sale of one of these trucks, we may not have the new ME.N.U Food Truck who have been making a splash on the streets of Toronto so far this summer with their tasty Asian inspired street food.
